Reports DNA Info New York:

A Washington Heights man and his cousin are suing Love & Hip Hop reality TV star Tahiry Jose after they were trampled and shot during a brawl in her now-shuttered nightclub, according to court records.

Edward Gaskin, 22, claims he was shot in the hand and his cousin Shameeka Green, 27, suffered unspecified injuries when she was trampled by a frightened crowd during a massive fight at Suite 135 at 701 West 135th St. on March 31, according to court records.

The suit charges that Jose and security contractors 5 Points Security endangered their customers by allowing a man to bring a gun into the club.

“This was a total failure on the part of the owners and operators of this club,” the victims’ lawyer, Philip Monier, said.

Also named in the lawsuit is Jose’s business partner, John Iacono.

Suite 135 opened in the fall of 2013. It was closed sometime in the spring for “renovations,” and hasn’t been open since.
